First Year SCs
Participants must have completed Grade 9 before participating in this program. This program focuses on technical skill development, with an introduction to group leadership skills. First year SC’s will face the challenge of a six-day canoe trip, and the opportunity to earn nationally recognized certifications in lifesaving, first aid, and canoeing. Participants also refine their skills in YMCA Wanakita’s other activity areas such as archery, sailing, kayaking, and outdoor living skills. Group cooperation, self discipline and personal initiative are keys to a successful and fulfilling experience.
Included in the price of registration, First Year SCs receive a quality Salus Personal Floatation Device (PFD) with the YMCA Wanakita logo which can be worn for years to come!
